Summary: What's great about these cards is that they are a single-slotted design, short as modern cards go - which these are still a few generations old - and when you get two or three playing together, it is YOU who laughs with glee. Excellent performers even going up against the 240GT. For those of you who do a little F@H, this card will actually get 1000 more points per day than a 240GT will at full utilization.
Summary: Lots of memory for a GPU that @ one time sold for $140+, it will handle anything that you can throw @ it ( game wise & dual monitors that is ). The only knock on this card is it does'nt have HDMI, it does have s-video and is GREAT to run in SLi. I've been running 2 in SLi in F.E.A.R & and COD Modern warfare & Black Op's w/everything ( settings) on high an NO hickups !! This is a solid GPU card...
Summary: this is a good card, i have one for around a year, but wanted a 2nd card for SLI GREAT, good card for the price. i run 2 lcd 19 inch screens, and my tv sometimes, it has a good pic and good fpr i game alot, on counter strike source get around 200 give or take, needs good power to push it, i have 750 watt,run 5 120mm fans dvd,cd, and extras, running q8300 over clocked to 3.4 with asus striker board, so i am getting a 2nd card for sli and giving to my kids and i am going...
GeForce 9600GSO 768 MB fast in DX9, not so fast in DX10
28 December 2009
Summary: Like all early 9600GSO cards this card is based on the same GPU as an 8800GT with reduced memory bandwidth and fewer shaders. The video card is almost as fast as an 8800GT card, but the memory used on the 768MB version is slower than on similar cards with equip less memory. This combined with the slightly crippled GPU limits the card's potential. Frame rates in software titles that support DX10 are relatively slow (generally about 25 frames per second).
